Tristar Red Sector Inc (TRSI, 1990-)

TRSI was born 29.06 1990, when Tristar and Red Sector Inc decided to join forces on the Red Sector and The Silents Summer Conference 1990. 1991 came and went, and 1992 saw the birth of a separate TRSI demo section, called Masque - responsible for the great WICKED SENSATION demo. However, the following year saw them tired of being merely the demosection of TRSI, so they left - taking all the legal members with them! This was certainly a blow for TRSI, but members like Warhead and TSM helped them back onto the throne. At The Party '93, most of the Polish section teamed up - with XTD and Norby at the helm. 1994 saw strong releases like CUBIC DREAM, ARTIFICE and VIKTORIA. Thanks to Mop's article in ROM #4 for background info.

German musician Virgill joined Complex according to Propaganda #4, but Virgill later made music for the TRSI demo "Twin Peaks" [12/96]... I believe the truth is closer to a double membership.

Group History

1990
German sysop The Seeker ('HOLY TOWER') decided to leave the scene towards the end of the year for personal problems. Germans The Master and TCM (Martin, trade, new 08-11/'90) were also kicked late this year. German musician Jester joined from Proton in october, but moved on to Sanity the following month, without having produced anything for the group.
1992
In December Swedish musician Emax joined, and immediately contributed tunes for TRSI cracktros and demos.
1994
2Fast left to form Avantgarde in the middle of August.
1995
Three main organizers now, Control, Warhead and Uyanik! German graphician Navy (ex B.A.S.F., 12/'93) was kicked early in the year, for unknown reasons. German musician Blackthorne ('93) joined Essence around the middle of 1995; his joining was announced in their mag ROM #5 [95]. Nah-Kolor was originally formed in the middle of 1995 by the Polish section of TRSI - Dreamer (ex Surprise! Productions, 12/'94), Norby (new 12/'93), Bald Horse, Lazur (ex TPDL), Elis (code, '94), and QBA - to serve as their demosection, like Surprise! Productions and Masque had in the past. However, the plans had not been correctly cleared with the leaders of TRSI, and at The Party 5, Nah-Kolor was given the choice of being real TRSI members or leaving in favour of this new group. The result was that Norby and Bald Horse decided to stay in TRSI, and that the rest continued as Nah Kolor. The rest of the Polish section was dismissed, and these people are no longer official members; Python (swap, early '95), Reset (swap, early '95), Trash Head (swap, early '95) and XTD (music, new 12/'93-12/'94). At least Trash Head and XTD joined Mystic. German graphician Fiver2 (ex Acrid, old handle Fiver, 12/'93-'95) joined Artwork sometime this year, after the release of his slideshow "Honeycomb" ['95] for TRSI.
1996
Graphician Scar joined Session late '96.
1997
The Finnish group Mellow Chips joined as a subgroup, to serve as the TRSI demomachinery.
1998
At The Gathering '98 in April, the Mellow Chips pay off - they win the demo competition with "Rise"!
